@AltcoinSherpa

These levels are on the edge of getting lost. They better continue to hold or else it's going to be 'lights out' for many alts. And these alts have held up better than others; the 1s that are already dead might fall even more. $SOL $MATIC $AVAX $LUNA https://t.co/hcEtwVS6g6

May 6, 2022, 7:16 a.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Close enough to the 200D EMA for this to still hold as support but this area has been tested several times already. Wouldn't mind seeing a spike to the high 60s for this to maybe bottom. #LUNA https://t.co/xbbYTpgXcK

May 3, 2022, 1:56 a.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Would look to bid low $70s on this one, 200D EMA. I dont think it's going to ATH from there but should be ok for a scalp long. https://t.co/MPIc16k6sH

April 15, 2022, 12:16 a.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Big Dick Kwon took this market higher and I think this just breaks resistance as long as btc is healthy. This price action is hard for me to read but I think that this goes up. https://t.co/t8aj6QlxuC

March 29, 2022, 12:10 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: High time frame closes look bad. I think this probably comes down lower in the short term; 1D closes are ugly and this one also pumped recently, prob better coins out there. 4h still looks ok though so I am neutral. #LUNA https://t.co/cShC7r1vQd

March 26, 2022, 1:43 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Weird chart , Idk what to think of it. Grinding its way up to all time highs, EMAs looking a bit healthier than before. I think it's probably just going to follow btc movement at this point (as most alts do). #LUNA https://t.co/WGJ0VKc8fl

March 24, 2022, 1:12 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LOOKS $APE $LUNA $ETH $AVAX Update for some #Altcoins: I think some of these look decent overall and some of these are active trades for me. Personally thinking that alts get a bit of recovery in the coming weeks. https://t.co/yuCRc8Ynz2

March 22, 2022, 6:08 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: I dont know where this is going in the short term. Everything looks bullish but this slow grind up is weird. It's probably bullish until shown otherwise. #LUNA https://t.co/FjYqjQP6q8

March 22, 2022, 1:06 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Still not personally shorting this thing bc I dont really like shorting the strongest coins but the high time frame 1D closes on this thing are ugly. Still bullish on higher time frames but things are looking iffy IMO. Neutral on this one. https://t.co/Y1h3IiNeYq

March 17, 2022, 1:54 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA $ALGO $RUNE $KNC $GRT: I did an analysis on some of these coins. Some of them are decent shorts coming up, some of them are interesting longs. Mostly going to depend on $BTC IMO. https://t.co/8RptFhP9D8

March 15, 2022, 4:22 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Double top in the short term; still a bullish market structure on the 4h though. I would still be patient personally and rather buy a dip in the mid $70s vs buying here. #LUNA https://t.co/5XqcYgX6oG

March 15, 2022, 2:23 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: $75 still remains a level of interest. A bit concerned that level already got tapped + BTC looking a bit iffy but I would still take a crack at that level (or around there) if it comes. #LUNA https://t.co/OqgMpgefwC

March 13, 2022, 8:46 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: If patient then I would look for $75. If aggressive, I would either wait for a break/retest above all time highs or mid $80s #LUNA https://t.co/z5QOIBGgEU

March 10, 2022, 5:23 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Not sure if I'll get this given the pop right now. A good example of why it's scarier to short coins like this one vs. other downtrending coins. https://t.co/xIJ7CXHgKj

March 8, 2022, 7:55 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: If looking for longs, maybe check out around 73ish or so. I am not looking to short this one, I think there are better coins to short rn. #LUNA https://t.co/Lcu72VEMaM

March 8, 2022, 1:48 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Took this one, I am just targeting low $80s. #LUNA https://t.co/2PlKajRPDG

March 7, 2022, 12:59 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Is a good coin to long at $77 for several reasons: coins like this are going to be bought up the fastest in these environments; they also have incredible upside when close to all time high lvls (price discovery). #LUNA https://t.co/vSAiWCwYLH

March 4, 2022, 2:18 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$BTC review along with $LUNA $AXS $SOL $FTM $NEAR $LOOKS and where the altcoin market is headed. Check it out: https://t.co/tcfSPcT63I

March 2, 2022, 6:38 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Knock knock motherfucker #LUNA https://t.co/xTO8mwRjPu

March 2, 2022, 3:01 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: I never got this entry which sucks but this remains 1 of the strongest altcoins on the market rn. I still don't think this is the right place to long and this is one of the few candidates where you should buy the fucking dip when it comes. #LUNA https://t.co/oeXByj6BfS

Feb. 28, 2022, 8:35 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Active trade idea, I'm bidding mid $60s. I'm not going to give you any targets or invalidation numbers; that's for you to decide for your own trading strategy. #LUNA https://t.co/9VXH9WvSEv

Feb. 28, 2022, 12:27 a.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: I actually think this looks decent with both pairs. The LUNABTC pair is approaching a resistance area but it's also spent almost a month forming a low. LUNAUSD looks to be on the verge of breaking out. Both pairs above the 200D EMA still and are strong. #LUNA https://t.co/vDCp6Yrte2

Feb. 23, 2022, 12:09 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

The 1 bit of hopium I can offer is that altcoin charts looked like absolute shit in May and they were close to the bottom. Here are 3 of $LUNA $AVAX $FTM https://t.co/7qmCoCsHIc

Feb. 20, 2022, 7:57 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: I think #LUNA looks pretty good here, its the 200D EMA and near the HVN area on volume profile. Furthermore, there is high sell volume overall, usually indication of a short term reversal at a minimum. Would target high $60s. https://t.co/lMgBHoL1ON

Feb. 2, 2022, 2:09 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

A little copium: May 2021 showed some horrid price action and alt charts looked proper fucked. $LUNA $FTM are two examples here. https://t.co/WJD7t6Z5nM

Jan. 23, 2022, 7:59 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: I think that this is normal price action; you generally see some sort of lower high formed. I'm expecting this to come down and then range a bit. If things go bad w. btc, this goes even farther. #LUNA https://t.co/GWgWyI1bBm

Jan. 17, 2022, 3:49 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: It still looks fine for now but I'm going to just remain cautious and look to maybe bid lower. 200 EMA on the 4h is historically a solid entry point. If price continues to hang around here, I would assume htis is the bottom. #LUNA https://t.co/owBq30YVH9

Jan. 1, 2022, 4:56 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Nice bounce today at the .382 but if btc makes another leg down (which I think could very well happen), I am looking at the lower levels. Safest is to probably scalp these current levels with bids lower. #LUNA https://t.co/kH7cy5d8rU

Dec. 29, 2021, 3:46 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

Here are some #Altcoin trades that I am viewing / eyeing. $YFI $AVAX $DUSK $LUNA Let me know what you think! $BTC ranging might be good for alts in the very short term. Be selective on what you choose to buy, though. https://t.co/UBPkDSx705

Dec. 21, 2021, 7:45 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: I think this is a possible support area but I would look to bid just a little lower. Maybe mid $50s would be just a bit better; lines up with the demand zone + 4h 200 EMA as well. #LUNA https://t.co/L4a19shuan

Dec. 12, 2021, 5:19 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: The high time frame trend is still nice trend. I didn't buy this one because the chart was not super clear to me. That said, anytime something is in price discovery, lots of unpredictable things happen. Expecting these fibs to be resistance levels. https://t.co/s8dlAQ23Pl

Nov. 30, 2021, 5:08 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

Here is my review on #altcoins. I go over $BTC $MANA $MATIC $LINK $FTT $ROSE $ADA $WILD $DAO $LUNA $LTC $WOO $DUSK $HTR $VRA and several more. Excited to getting back to doing this! https://t.co/skkodBglQv

Nov. 24, 2021, 7:28 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Both pairs are at the 200 EMA on the 4h, usually a decent area of support. Entire market looking iffy but this is probably a decent buy here in the short term. #LUNA https://t.co/bRIczgvZBf

Sept. 20, 2021, 9:45 a.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: 1 of the few altcoins that just looks really good to me personally- I think that this is bullish consolidation and #LUNA will make another leg up *btc permitting*. https://t.co/FW37TJrymz

March 5, 2021, 11:37 a.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Despite everything else dumping, this one likely moves up soon IMO (as long as btc doesnt nuke). I think the sellers are getting tapped over and again. #LUNA https://t.co/l3nPkHAlm8

March 4, 2021, 7:39 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Great moves today, I think this breaks ATH lvls soon as long $BTC behaves a bit. Expecting the sellers to be mostly out when this comes around next. #LUNA https://t.co/Gt9kXHAn0u

March 3, 2021, 1:47 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Looks good for now, that said, I'm still expecting some chop overall. $7.50 should give a reaction, and I'll be buying that dip. #LUNA https://t.co/OHdALRCtAd

March 1, 2021, 7:56 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Should be good soon IMO. next test of $7.50 should break it I think.... #LUNA https://t.co/nXsCT7eGwo

Feb. 26, 2021, 6:50 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Looks good with both pairs. I'm long here with more orders lower. #LUNA https://t.co/X0YqL3hBBG

Feb. 24, 2021, 2:12 a.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: It's doing great today, really strong moves overall. The sellers around $8.40 got tapped again. Probably a buy the dip situation soon. #LUNA https://t.co/Dvvueh4seQ

Feb. 22, 2021, 2:06 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: I was inaccurate with my fibs, something I'll need to fix going forward. Neutral on this one, could be a double top or something else but I'm leaning bullish still. #LUNA https://t.co/IBQOAlAEvv

Feb. 18, 2021, 5:57 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: In order to get your levels tight, you need to scale down to lower time frames. I didn't do that here but I should have. Still looking good. #LUNA https://t.co/PmY931HuSC

Feb. 17, 2021, 10:20 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Breakout/another leg up incoming? #LUNA https://t.co/jg3I494G3L

Feb. 17, 2021, 3:41 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Time to move? Looks really good today. Still stuck in its range though. Expecting a reaction around $6.50. #LUNA https://t.co/qqLLdw7eyf

Feb. 16, 2021, 2:33 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Coins that were already accumulating like #LUNA are probably not going to have too much volatility, even in these market conditions IMO. Expect maybe a little downside but mostly ranging. https://t.co/qDEzRPAaTv

Feb. 14, 2021, 3:06 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Watching and waiting. Not sure when the next leg up will come, consolidation is very normal after this big run. #LUNA https://t.co/Cw9fCjzW54

Feb. 13, 2021, 4:29 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Wouldn't surprise me to see this one range a little bit after that crazy run it had. This is healthy. Am just going to watch this one, no entry for now. #LUNA https://t.co/JTZPskFubh

Feb. 12, 2021, 4:10 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Could have been the blow off top, watch out. See $FTM for similar price action after....we'll see. This 1 is still very strong but I would be careful. #LUNA https://t.co/RTJJDe4mQi

Feb. 9, 2021, 3:10 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: $4.15 and $4.34 should provide bounces IMO. Feel pretty confident at least 1 of those areas should hit. #LUNA https://t.co/Nyba4AUj9J

Feb. 8, 2021, 6:30 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: I held this underwater all night long, was down thousands, could barely sleep because of it. Adjusted my fib, had lots of EMAs and started adding different lines to my charts (every trader has done this lol). Thank fucking God this one pumped.Reminded me of @Ninjascalp lol https://t.co/gglD0PcnPM

Feb. 4, 2021, 2:40 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Now we wait... https://t.co/4reZyGoQ59

Feb. 3, 2021, 5:32 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Hmm #LUNA dipping, interesting support area here but $2 is probably a better bet. https://t.co/BawHKS4jL2

Feb. 3, 2021, 12:29 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: # keeps going up, buy any pullback on this one. #LUNA https://t.co/N62MNxBTpF

Feb. 2, 2021, 9:18 p.m.

@AltcoinSherpa

$LUNA: Good gains lately, $1.14 would be a solid buy if it comes. #LUNA https://t.co/wQ9cxaKn05

About Terra

What Is Terra (LUNA)?

Terra is a blockchain protocol that uses fiat-pegged stablecoins to power price-stable global payments systems. According to its white paper, Terra combines the price stability and wide adoption of fiat currencies with the censorship-resistance of Bitcoin (BTC) and offers fast and affordable settlements.

Development on Terra began in January 2018, and its mainnet officially launched in April 2019. As of September 2021, it offers stablecoins pegged to the U.S. dollar, South Korean won, Mongolian tugrik and the International Monetary Fund's Special Drawing Rights basket of currencies — and it intends to roll out additional options.

Terra's native token, LUNA, is used to stabilize the price of the protocol's stablecoins. LUNA holders are also able to submit and vote on governance proposals, giving it the functionality of a governance token.

Who Are the Founders of Terra?

Terra was founded in January 2018 by Daniel Shin and Do Kwon. The two conceived of the project as a way to drive the rapid adoption of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency through a focus on price stability and usability. Kwon took on the position of CEO of Terraform Labs, the company behind Terra.

Prior to developing Terra, Shin co-founded and headed Ticket Monster, otherwise known as TMON — a major South Korean e-commerce platform. He later co-founded Fast Track Asia, a startup incubator working with entrepreneurs to build fully functional companies.

Kwon previously founded and served as CEO of Anyfi, a startup providing decentralized wireless mesh networking solutions. He has also worked as a software engineer for Microsoft and Apple.

What Makes Terra Unique?

Terra seeks to set itself apart through its use of fiat-pegged stablecoins, stating that it combines the borderless benefits of cryptocurrencies with the day-to-day price stability of fiat currencies. It keeps its one-to-one peg through an algorithm that automatically adjusts stablecoin supply based on its demand. It does so by incentivizing LUNA holders to swap LUNA and stablecoins at profitable exchange rates, as needed, to either expand or contract the stablecoin supply to match demand.

Terra has established a number of partnerships with payments platforms, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region. In July 2019, Terra announced a partnership with Chai, a South Korea-based mobile payments application, in which purchases made using the application on e-commerce platforms are processed via the Terra blockchain network. Each transaction is subject to (on average) a 2%–3% fee charged to the merchant.

In addition, Terra is supported by the Terra Alliance, a group of businesses and platforms advocating for the adoption of Terra. In February 2019, the company announced that e-commerce platforms from 10 different countries, representing a user base of 45 million and a gross merchandise value of $25 billion, were members of the alliance.

How Many Terra (LUNA) Coins Are There in Circulation?

Terra has a supply of 1 billion tokens. If this number is exceeded, LUNA is burned until it returns to the equilibrium supply level. New LUNA tokens are minted through the protocol's algorithm, as needed, in order to maintain the price of Terra stablecoins.

LUNA was first made available for purchase in a private token sale for initial investors, which included the investment arms of major exchanges such as Binance, OKEx and Huobi. The sale concluded in August 2018, and as a result, Terra raised $32 million. Of the 385,245,974 LUNA minted for the sale, 10% was reserved for Terraform Labs, 20% for employees and project contributors, 20% for the Terra Alliance, 20% for price stability reserves, 26% for project backers and 4% for genesis liquidity.

How Is the Terra Network Secured?

The Terra blockchain is secured using a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm based on Tendermint, in which LUNA token holders stake their tokens as collateral to validate transactions, receiving rewards in proportion to the amount of LUNA staked. Tokenholders may also delegate others to validate transactions on their behalf, sharing in any revenue generated. Terra also offers additional guidance to validator nodes on the best practices for helping to keep the network secure.

In May 2019, shortly after Terra's mainnet went live, blockchain verification and penetration testing firm CertiK completed a security audit of the network. It examined its economic model to test against market manipulation, its architecture and its coding language. CertiK found that the "modeling and mathematical reasoning" of the Terra network were "considered sound," although it would not comment on the blockchain's performance.

Where Can You Buy Terra (LUNA)?

Terra's native token, LUNA, is listed on several cryptocurrency exchanges — including Huobi, Bitfinex and Upbit — where it is available to be traded against fiat currencies, stablecoins and other cryptocurrencies.

Are you interested in buying LUNA or other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin? CoinMarketCap has an educational section — Alexandria — to teach you all about crypto and how to buy your first coins.

To check LUNA price live in the fiat currency of your choice, you can use CoinMarketCap’s converter feature directly on the Terra currency page. Alternatively, use the dedicated exchange rate converter page. Popular LUNA price pairs include: LUNA/USD, LUNA/GBP, LUNA/AUD and LUNA/JPY.
